Barn Hunt Classes
Barn Hunt is one of the fastest growing competitive dog sports in the country where dogs test their ability to find rats safely enclosed in specialized PVC tubes hidden on an increasingly challenging course of straw bales. Courses are timed and unlike the rat catcher’s job of old, the rats are never harmed and in fact are very well loved (and highly trained!) companions.
Our students have earned hundreds of titles at all levels of competition including many championships but most importantly enjoy competing together as a team. Classes are filling fast so don’t wait! Train in a friendly, knowledgeable and experienced environment that focuses on helping teams achieve their goals. Experience the difference at Revolution Dog Sports.

Scent Work Classes
Our dogs love to sniff and find things. In fact, dogs have such a great sense of smell that they are often used to locate illegal drugs, explosives, bed bugs and even cancer. The sport of scent work, also called nosework, provides a fun and exciting outlet for your dog’s super sniffer by teaching him or her to find target odors such as birch, anise and clove. Nosework builds confidence and focus while providing essential mental and physical stimulation for a happy and well balanced companion. It is also just plain fun!
Our nosework classes develop search drive and motivation to work, odor recognition and a clear focused response behavior. Our goal is a happy dog that will not only efficiently and methodically search for and identify target odors in a variety of environments and situations, but WANTS to work and play with their handler.
